WINNIPEG - Do well in school and the province could pay for part of your university education.

That's what the Manitoba Liberals are promising if they are elected in the Oct. 4. provincial election.

Leader Jon Gerrard says kids who do well in grade school would get cash credits toward their post-secondary tuition.

And university students who get good grades would be eligible for a tuition rebate.

The Liberals would also give students a bus pass as part of their fees.

The package would cost $57 million.
